Hello Again and BBC Censoring
Posted: Saturday, 06 September 2008
Hello J and M All contributions to Island Blogging are subject to the House Rules and Terms and Conditions. Signing up to use Island Blogging means all bloggers agree to abide by these guidelines. I can assure you that your contributions were not 'censored'. What does happen is that the House Rules and T and Cs, by which everyone contributing to the site agrees to abide, are applied. If you wish to blog and comment completely at will, there are other blogging platforms which you might find more suited to your needs. Our House Rules and T and Cs exist to safeguard bloggers and ensure that the boundaries of what is and is not acceptable on the site are clear. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and Island Blogging engenders debate through its posts (Lewis wind farms, ferry services, etc) and in the comments in response to those blogs. One thing which does not appear on Island Blogging or any BBC website are restaurant (or any kind of commercial) reviews. If the content of this current post is similar to that of the failed blog, then it is most likely to be for this reason that the original blog was failed. Any future restaurant reviews will also not appear on the site for the same reason. Commercial promotion of any business or product is against BBC Guidelines. Other outlets for such reviews are widely available and these, as already stated, may provide a more appropriate forum.

1) well written,namesake: 2) now i'm convinced you two,like another blogger who has another blog are acting like this just to wind people up

Forget the restaurants. What I want to know is who would be so down and out as to live in a five bedroom house with only two bathrooms. I mean: are guests supposed to take a number or wait in a queue? Or are there mighty oak trees outside of sufficient girth to provide privacy? # I also resent the slur on Glaswegians. No resident of Glasgow would use markers on plastered leg, or plastered anyone: Glaswegians are proud to be able to tatoo bench snoozers without waking them up. Better check up the wife and see what souvenirs those Glaswegians left on the skin.

Well its either that or you are the sort of people our islands could well do without! I suspect the latter.

You cannot be serious! FIVE bedrooms and only two bathrooms!

Mr M, if I was you I'd write to the bounders at the EBC and complain!

This blog is a wind up, yes? "(we would rather someone else did this - a little downmarket for us!)" Boy, I didn't know such snobbery existed, I'm glad you don't live on this island. I think the story about the plaster cast is hilarious.

Personally I never read restaurant reviews (pretentious rubbish) just go on friends recomendations.
